Having problems as my saw doesn't have holes required to mount it to the jig. I have a Contractor Skilsaw  HD 5687. There is only one hole and it is to far away to use it. Any ideas?

Added a picture. Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions


Teresa, no problem here. The machine-screws on the Rip-Cut aren't actually designed to thread into the holes on your saw. Rather, they simply apply downward pressure to your saw's base plate. 

See step 4 in your instructions:

exactly what Kregrep said....the screws are cone-tipped to bite into the saw base holding the guide in place


You just let those pointed screws clamp onto the plate.

Great. I misread and thought there should be holes in the saw . Thank you all so much for the help. I am excited to use the rip cut and my new saw!

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
